Why? Because popularity doesn't equal quality. Because this list makes me sad. Because fast playing doesn't equal quality (again). Because most of you should check up the term "dynamics"

Walter Page Report Abuse
No list can be complete without Walter Page and his famous 'walking bass' technique of which he was the innovator. Although he died in 1957 his music lives on with his own band, but he can be heard at his best in the 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert with the finest of Benny Goodman's bands.

Simply because he inspired many to pick up a bass guitar in a town that offered few possibilities. We play only because we saw him rock to fuck. A live performance to die for every gig. He also happens to be rather good. Thanks richard, my life changed direction for the better thanks to you x

Ross Valory (Journey) Report Abuse
I do realize journey may be seen as overrated but seriously if you listen to any journey song, and I mean any, other than Raised on Radio material, you'll see what I mean. I'm actually disappointed Randy Jackson was up here on the list in the first place. Back to the music, throughout every album he played on, you can hear the bass and those baselines in my opinion should be higher up.

Johnny Kongo Report Abuse
With 13+ years professional performing and playing experience Johnny Kongo rolls thick when it comes to bass. Either up-right or electric, expect the fat tone and energy only achieved by those that truly love the instrument. Johnny Kongo has played in bands such as: The Fossil Ridge Band, The Vagrents, The Almont Bros String Band, The InSINerators, The Aquasonics, Mad Dog and the Smokin' Js, and Adam Lopez and his Mighty Lowcasters. Recently gone solo, Kongo has teamed up with Denver guitar legend Colfax Slim to create The Johnny Kongo All-Star Show and The Kongo & Slim Cowboy Dope Show.

Dougie Poynter Report Abuse
He may not be the best, but he's still pretty good. Especially considering he got into the band McFly at age 15. In 2004, they got into the Guinness Book of World Records for being "the youngest band to have a début album go straight to number one", beating the Beatles. I've seen them play live as well, and they were exceptional.

John Taylor Report Abuse
Exquisite bass guitarist. Technically brilliant, the central point of many top tunes for 30 years. Any budding Bass player can learn a great deal from his wide range of style. Rock, Disco, Funk lines - it's all there and replicated in live performances. A very natural Bass player. Makes it look so easy. Top ten IMO.

John Deacon of Queen Report Abuse
John Deacon must be the most underrated bass player of all time... He wrote some of the most memorable hits like Another One Bites The Dust and Under Pressure, yet he is almost never mentioned with the best and seems to be forgotten. This man was 1/4 of arguably the best band ever that was Queen and understandably so. He needs to be remembered and respected as much as anyone else on this list if not more. Just listen to some of the early Queen records lke Liar, The March Of The Black Queen, Flick Of The Wrist and The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke and you will see how important to Queen he was!

Mel Schacher Report Abuse
Mel’s unique bass delivery became a staple of Grand Funk recordings and concerts. His huge "lead bass" style helped create the signature Grand Funk sound and his muscular approach to music has inspired countless musicians to blend rock-solid support punctuated with fluid riffs. Grand Funk was wildly popular in the 70's and Mel's licks were a big part of the music that turned so many people on.

Ryan Martini Report Abuse
Im actually quite surprised he is not on this list, if you dont know who he is, he is the bassist frim Mudvayne. The sheer complexity alone is reason enough for this man to be considered an all time great. Aside from that, the things he comes up with are catchy ass hell. For example the song "Dig", the bass/guitar intro says it all. As far as complexity, check out "Internal Primates Forever"

Not just Harris's technical skill on the bass, but his overall songwriting talent. Who else can take Samuel Taylor Coledridge poetry and write a heavy metal song about it? Probably someone else could, but demonstratively, only Steve Harris has done it.
